Review: I have to admit…I watched the movie trailer for Rush a couple of weeks ago, and it made me have very low expectations for this film. However, I was pleasantly surprised on how good this movie turned out to be! This drama depicts James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) as intense rivals in the world of Grand Prix racing. The two characters balance each other well, as Brühl plays the more logical one and Hemsworth plays the passionate playboy who gets NAKED A LOT throughout the film (drool….). Rivalries are notorious for being negative, but Rush has a wonderful twist on a perspective of rivalries being great motivation for those involved. This positive light blossoms into a competitive friendship between the two racers, but they had to overcome a lot of adversities both in their personal and professional lives before they could realize they almost need each other in order to live a fulfilling life and beat the odds of the dangerous career they chose for themselves.
I give Rush two thumbs up for its new take on rivalries, humor, and fantastic acting.
